Grants and Funding

There are many grants, scholarships and other funding opportunities available for residents and organisations within the Electorate of Maiwar. I'm always keen to support community groups and organisations to receive the funding they need. If you need help getting funding, or would like a letter of support from me, please get in touch. If you know of funding opportunities not on our list, please email us with the details.
